2 Years : From Dec 2011 to Dec 2013
Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:MSPD), a leading supplier of
semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today
announced the industry’s lowest-power clock and data recovery (CDR)
capable of supporting data rates from 25 to 28 gigabits per second
(Gbps). The low power dissipation is a critical requirement for enabling
the 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) system port densities that the
industry must achieve in order to handle increasing internet traffic and
escalating online video content demand.
Mindspeed will be demonstrating its new CDR technology at the The
Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exposition and the National
Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (OFC/NFOEC 2012), from March 6-8,
2012, in booth #1761/173 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The
company will also be showcasing its broad range of physical media
devices (PMDs) for equipment used to deliver fiber-to-the-x (FTTx)
multi-play services via fiber-access networks.
“Increasing internet traffic and the demand for online video content is
driving the need to upgrade network connections from 10Gbps to 100Gbps,”
said Hasnain Bajwa, senior vice president and general manager,
high-performance analog (HPA) at Mindspeed. “To enable this upgrade, CDR
integrated circuits (ICs) are required that can reset the link’s jitter
budget at data rates from 25Gbps to 28Gbps. These CDRs also must
dissipate extremely low power in order to achieve high 100Gbps system
port densities. Mindspeed®’s 28Gbps CDR dissipates the lowest power in
the industry, and will be a key building block for next-generation
Mindspeed’s CDR can support data rates required for multiple standards
including 100GbE, Infiniband Enhanced Data Rate (EDR), 32G Fibre Channel
and Optical Transport Network (OTU4). The low-power solution will enable
next-generation optical and copper module form factors such as C
Form-factor Pluggable2 (CFP2) and Quad Small Form-Factor Pluggable Plus
(QSFP+). Mindspeed’s CDR IC also integrates such key features as an
input equalizer and output de-emphasis to optimize the link performance.
It also is reference-free, reducing the number of components required to
implement this solution. Further, it achieves very high input
sensitivity, removing the need for including a discrete limiting
amplifier in the module.
Evaluation boards for the 28Gbps CDR are available now for those working
on low power designs for 100GbE and Infiniband EDR, including CFP2
optical modules and QSFP active optical cables and optical modules.
